Just finished a
fabulous painting holiday in Wooler, we hired the house for the
week and what can I say everything about it was perfect, food,
accommodation which was plush beyond belief. We were really
lucky with the weather and had fabulous days to paint out on
location everyday which was of course in the most beautiful
countryside in Northumberland. So successful in fact that I have
already booked the place for next year.
I did a show the night before last at Biggleswade art society.
It was a really good turnout, a good bunch of people and a real
laugh. Id like to thank everybody for making me so welcome and
turning out in mass.
I have just done a
couple of fairly spectacular paintings for the RNLI once of
which I am donating to the RNLI for fund raising, but before it
goes it is being photographed for prints and greetings cards. I
will keep you posted on these when they become available.
Been to lots of
places since my last update, Dedham is Suffolk which was lovely
weather and we managed to paint outside in glorious sunshine
everyday and capture some of the fabulous villages and
countryside of suffolk. I have bee to France 3 times this year,
again been really lucky with the weather. All in all its been a
fabulous summer this year. Lets hope it holds out for my final
one which is in Wooler, Northumberland next month.

OUTDOORS ON LOCATION WORKSHOPS
Some of our most popular workshops are
based outdoors in and around our local
area here in Northumberland.
The workshops are based in the studio
which we use just in case the weather
turns against us. With the weather on
our side, we will travel out each day to
paint locations such as Druridge Bay,
Warkworth Castle, The River Coquet and
various barns and little hideaways in
the immediate area.
These video downloads are our most
popular and talked about item.
They really are televisual quality, I
suppose that's because they were filmed
by the TV crew and directed by the TV
director who did so many of the Tyne
Tees TV programmes with me. Packed full
